Proper maintenance extends the life of your system.
Westfalia is committed to the quality and reliability of all of our products.
Although your automated storage and retrieval system can generate ROI in about five years, proper service and maintenance further maximize this investment and can lead to a system lifespan of 25+ years, thus lowering the total cost of ownership and providing long-term operational efficiencies.
Preventative service and maintenance is a key ingredient to keeping your system in pristine condition as when it was first installed. Westfalia offers full service programs including a 24/7 hotline, preventative maintenance programs, inspection packages, individual spare parts management and numerous options for scheduling plant maintenance. Customers receive discounted hourly rates if they are under a service contract for preventative maintenance inspections (PMI) and service support agreements (SSA). These customers also receive priority in the event of multiple customer emergencies. Westfalia provides in-house certified service technicians for every service option.
